Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, 2019
This chapter examines the legacy of the ICTY and the ICTR in addressing sexual and gender-based violence. It explores how the ICTY and the ICTR's Trial and Appeals Chambers have influenced definition of sexual and gender-based violations within the categories of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes. It first considers the far-reaching impact of the Tribunals on the definition of rape, as well as the legal dissonance they created. The chapter then explores how the Tribunals' legacy on sexual and gender-based violence expand beyond crime definitions. Finally, the chapter offers an analysis of the collective legacy of the ICTY and ICTR on the investigation and prosecution of sexual and gender-based violence.
